  • Dhome to report to co-head of financial sponsors Maellare

UBS Group AG hired Laurent Dhome from JPMorgan Chase & Co. as managing director at the Swiss bank’s financial sponsors team in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Dhome, who has relationships with financial sponsors in Europe, particularly in France, will report to the bank’s global co-head of financial sponsors Simona Maellare, according to a memo obtained by Bloomberg News and confirmed by a UBS spokeswoman.

Dhome has 24 years of investment banking experience. He worked at JPMorgan for 17 years across a number of areas including mergers and acquisitions, consumer, health care and business services.

UBS has boosted its financial sponsors deals coverage in the EMEA region with other recent hirings including Nestor Paz Galindo, who joined UBS from JPMorgan in March as head of sell side financial sponsors M&A. Ian Hart will start at UBS in August as co-chairman of U.K. investment banking after having worked at Morgan Stanley.
